    Other Space Mountain Soft Openings

    I have been reading around MiceChat for a while, and have noticed that everybody is only talking about SM's Soft Opening, for this weekend, but, what about the time between then and the 15. Will they be doing the openings then, or what? I believe that is what they did with Buzz. Correct me if i am wrong.

    i'm pretty sure that is what they did. Disney just doesn't say, ok here is one weekend where we will, possible work out the bugs on one of the most popular rides ever created. i don't think so. i think that they will be testing it for at least a week , week and 1/2.

    How do you even know they are even going to be testing at all this weekend? All everyone has is rumours about a soft opening, this is bigger than Buzz or any recent openings. Things could be different this time around.

    And do we really need ANOTHER soft opening thread?

    yes, but they Soft Opened TOT, and that was the biggest opening of 2004.
    Space Mountain hast to be tested like this, it is the only relevent way to get all the kinks out. Unless they want to take every employee on duty at the time and have them ride time, after time, after time.

    Seriously, does anybody think that they could, would do soft openings for a while. To get the "kinks" out.

    Thanks for the info. Clandestine meetings abound!
    Well, light travels from the sun. Then, bounces off of our planet, and back into our eyes so we can perceive color. My body can intercept that light and dance around on it!

    I'm just reporting what he told me. Anyone who knows Disney knows that there are no guarantees when it comes to soft openings. All I know is what he said his shift was and that he said it was the first day of soft openings.

    If there are opening kinks, it's not my fault.

    I think the only logical reasoning for soft openings this weekend is to absorb the huge crowds at Disneyland because the Cast Members at the Disneyland Resort (and I mean ALL CMs) have been riding it since last month. So they actually don't need actual guests to be "testing" out the ride.

    With that said, I think it's very likely that they will do soft openings this weekend for the general public just to get people waiting in line and not cause traffic jams every where in the park for the 4th of July weekend.

    I can't imagine what that line is going to look like after eveyone on the internet finds out along with every other person that is going to be there just because its summer and a holiday...

    Question is: is the soft opening going to be all day, or just a few hours like some soft openings are?

    Unusually and exceedingly peculiar and altogether quite impossible to describe...

    Remember what happen with the Buzz Lightyear Ride. when they saw that people were posting, on message boards, when the soft openings were happening, they changed the hours.
